Geo-tag


Geo-tagging is a function, where GPS-enabled devices can insert metadata with geographical information (coordinates) into a file such as photo, associating it with the geographic location it was taken at.


Some new cameraphones support automatic geo-tagging of any pictures taken.


Geo-tags can be read by any device or desktop computer software which reads geo-tagging metadata, such as image editors and online image galleries.
